Severe storms possible today

We’re in a bit of a break from the rain for now, but that will change as we go through the day. Showers are possible at any time, but as the center of former Tropical Storm Cindy makes it way closer to our area this afternoon and evening, t-storms will become more likely. Some of these storms will be capable of damaging winds and very heavy rainfall. In addition. tropical systems tend to produce isolated, weak tornadoes. I expect tornado watches to be issued for our area  a bit later today. I’ll let you know when they are. If we get some sunshine today, that will destabilize the environment even more. So, if we stay cloudy that will really help keep the storms from becoming as severe as they might otherwise be.

Tonight, the chance for heavy showers continues, as the remnants of Cindy collide with a cold front over our area.  All this activity should be moving out of here by Saturday morning. Most of Saturday should be rain-free, but we can’t rule out a morning shower. Sunday looks fantastic, with highs near 80 and lower humidity values.

I’ll keep an eye on the weather today and will let you know if something comes up that you need to know about!
